Allison was unquestionably the easiest person to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. She was very responsive, her pricing was clear and very reasonable and of course the music was fantastic. Allison showed up on time and performed everything we requested exactly as we had hoped. I can't recommend her enough!

I used occasional music for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Allison was extremely helpful in picking out the music. The string trio arrived in a timely manner dressed in black and effortlessly played beautiful music before, during and after the ceremony. They were a wonderful addition to the wedding!! I would highly recommend them!

Allison from Occasional Music was amazing to work with! We wanted a different playlist for our ceremony. She and the rest of the quartet accommodated us with no problem! She was easy to get in touch with, arrived promptly, and their music was beautiful. I would certainly recommend them to anyone else looking for musicians for their wedding!

I just wanted to thank the talented musicians at Occasional Music for playing at our wedding at the Lighthouse Inn, Cape Cod. Allison Lacasse was so great and easy to work with throughout the entire process; from my initial inquiry to the walking down the aisle to Canon in D by Pachelbel. She responded quickly to every single e-mail and she was extremely helpful when I had questions.Occasional Music played before, during, and a lit bit after our ceremony, combining classic and contemporary songs, including a song we asked them to learn for us: Game of Thrones soundtrack. They played so beautiful! I received so many compliments that day on how great they sounded!

Occasional Music was great! We booked them quickly and they put together an arrangement of a piece that wasn't in their repertoire just for the event. They arrived at the venue early, looked professional, and sounded wonderful! Alley was awesome to work with over email.

We hired occasional music to play our September wedding ceremony. The sound was beautiful and working with Allison through the weeks up to the wedding was easy and smooth. She is such a kind, helpful and knowledgeable person; she made every step of the planning process a breeze. The quartet which included a flute was beautiful and as I walked down the aisle I was so pleased that their sound and appearance made my wedding very elegant. We had many guests compliment us on the musuc. We will definitely recommend occasional music for the quality of sound, professionalism, and helpfulness through the planning process.

I absolutely loved having Occasional Music at my wedding. Despite a (relatively) last minute venue change, and some very specific song requests, these folks really came through and delivered a terrific performance. Several wedding guests complimented the strings' performance to me after the event.
